Riff: Future – “Never Satisfied”

Apr 21, 2014

After you get money and all your dreams come true/It’s like everything that surround you get brand new/I can’t never forget the struggle and I pay dues/Can’t let the money and fame come between my crew

from Never Satisfied lyrics by Future

What is it about lame duck rappers stating the obvious in their hooks. They take the most flimsy beat – in this case one that sounds exactly the same as the previous ones – and slap on one pleonastic line after another expecting it to fly up the charts. Any drunk with a computer can do the same.
